TAST and The White Peacock Purse

I didn't complete this last night like I had hoped, but I did get quite a bit done including the beading on the Detached chain leaves on the vine to the right of the peacock:

Beaded Detached Chain

The beads give it a whole new look! They add more color and dimension to the stitching. I used 1 light green bugle bead in the center of each Detached Chain stitch.

Here's what the entire block looks like:

Green And Purple Block

This afternoon, I'll add the spider web to the bottom left-hand corner and highlight the peacock's wing with some silver thread and then it's complete. I'll have another update for you tomorrow.

It may be too much, but a few purple beads in the tailfeathers?? It looks marvelous, as do all of your purses, squares, .... so much talent .... I keep getting the urge to do something ... If I stick around much more, I will .... I even picked up fabric scraps at the flea market :) Thanks for the inspiration!!

I've always loved how you put bugle beads inside your detached chains on the feather stitch base. That is the "Pamela Look" in my mind!
Think I will stitch a tribute to you and that on my next little border block...;-)

It looks great! Because of the flash of the camera, I can't tell - are those purple beads or sequins making the flowers on the vine? It's just a beautiful block.
